Re: PART III PASSED !!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK here goes.. my life story..

Started my Pink Licence on May this year, completed the Training (20Hours) and was more than keen to book the Part III
Paid for the Test Beginning of August, no Test times available
Waited till end of August.. still none available..
Waited Mid Sept, had enough, had to ring them, was more than ready for the test and didn't want to pick up any bad habits, said still had nothing !
next day got a confirmation time and date.. the date that my pink licence expired.. mmmm something not quite right there.. so went on the internet and managed to get one for 4 days time.. now its really kicking in.. you know the feeling.. !

So, made sure car was clean and spotless and was we'll groomed myself.. Never felt so good !

OK. got into test station in Wigston (Leicester) and was shaking like mad, examiner called me out, the same guy that took me on the Part II. Hit it off straight the way,

Phase I
T-Junction (Emerging)

We'll briefing was good, asked the right questions, linked the last lesson into the one were doing today, got all the info I wanted, had some uncertainty about the amount of steering, but soon jumped on that quite quickly, was unsure about the gear change but soon jumped on that.
Off we went, I swear he missed a right blind spot so jumped on him straight away, he said he checked it, but said I'd like to see it again, he wasn't getting away with it that easily !
as soon as you come out of the Bay there was a T-Junction, dam, I forgot about that, less than 5 Meteres away, Guided talk before i forgot, did apologise it was a bit late he smiled and said no problem, all went we'll, kept swinging out to turn left, approx3-4 meteres away from the kerb, didn't realise till the end of the phase, but managed to Rectify it on the last attempt.
then the right turns, all went we'll until i asked "would you like to attempt the next one by yourself" he replied "your the Instructor you tell me", dam we wasn't playing ball, said I'll reduce the prompts and decide form there.
Come across a cyclist, asked him "how much room should we leave for the cyclist ?" he replied don't know, I said "1 Meter", oooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhh crumbs.. it was 2 Meters
(Got a fault for dealing with cyclists unsatisfactory)

Last T-Junction, was nearly 28Min's gone, so know I was near the end, last chance to show him, Turn right, Vehicle came out of no where, looked to me like he was going for it, Jumped on the Dual controls, Car didn't stall. Told him I used the controls and why and we needed to pull over to explain the severity.
Said "if you can walk across it, you drive across it", got his agreement and said we need to do that junction again.
Said the Left Turns looked good so far and the Right Turns were coming on we'll, and he achieved the T-junctions with little bit of help from me and just needed to tweak the Judgment and that it will come with practice and will be covered again on his Crossroads on the next lesson.
He ended the Phase 1 There ..

Phase 2..
Overtaking, Crossing the Path, Anticipation
Role: Passed his test 30 years ago, got a new job coming up that involves a company car, and his future employer has asked him to seek further driving tution before letting him loose in the company Vehicle.
Examiner did say if you wish you can take off the Roof box, it's entirely your choice, said I will as i needed to stretch my legs and grab a drink before starting the next phase.
OK, asked a few questions in each department, got them all right, plus he gave some technical answers that really threw me out.
So said "we'll you know the answers, just putting them into practice, lets go and do some driving and have some fun"
He smiled and nodded his head, oh dear what have I done ???? lol

Jumped straight into anticpation skills, got them right, crossing the path of oncoming cars, hesitated, told him if he can walk across he can drive across, so he decided to go for it when the car got closer, stopped him immediately with a verbal instruction, he then said "i could of walked across that, it is what you told me !" I replied how Quick do you walk then ? found out his walking pace was quicker than normal, got that sorted.
More anticpation skills, Cars on opposite side Lorry came down, dam.. hes going for it, had to think Quick.. Can you fit through that gap "yeah" he replied.. I doubt it, STOP !!!
this is where it went all wrong, got to next parked Delievery Van, got him to do his MSM.. still something not right..
Got him to do MSPSL.. something still not right..
LADA.. still not driving right..
Must be a planning Fault, I asked him how far down the road he should look, said he didn't, OK, theres the Fault, look and plan we'll ahead..
is it.. nah, this is where all the questions started getting confusing..
Why look ahead, explained why, then he said we'll what about in front of me, so said to look we'll ahead and in front, but what about in between the two ?
dammmm.. he's telling me what to say..
Ok, Look we'll ahead, Middle and closely in front.. Got it.. Or did I ?
Nope he had to ask another question.. what about behind he asked, Good answer I said ! (blag my way out of this one then.. !!)
He said I haven't got eyes in the back of my head you know.. I burst out laughing, he looked at me rather strangely, I replied "you right, if we did we wouldn't need the mirrors would we, so how do you think we should check ?" MIRRORS he replied !!!!
dam.. that must of hit my Grade hard.. !
OK, this is the best bit, driving down a road with some bus stops:
Whats the next hazard, he replied "the two (Fat) ladies on the pavement thats going to the Gym (Give him respect he didn't mention the word "fat"), I never laughed so much, he was in stitches himself, he laughed that much I actually gave the last 5 minutes of directions without him telling me where he wanted to go.
we got to the test centre and he said I gonna have to end it there, be back shortly

Wow, your right, its a !!!!!!!! long time !!
"Pleased to say your passed, Phase I = Grade 5, Phase II= Grade 4"
about died, gave me a 15 min debrief and gave me a path of career and the options available.
he said he enjoyed the lessons and role play and had a good laugh, said sometimes laughter gets you a long way and I had the right attitude but did lack in some areas.

So, what advice would I give..
we'll Learn to enforce the MSPSL, LADA, MSM and get the pupil to plan well ahead, Front of car and in between the two, then look behind, I'll be very honest i never done this method, but will do it with every pupil thats at that higher standard of driving.

Read PDI's reports, learn from them, and Practice them.. most of all make it fun, the examiners love it. Keep the examiner by the short and curlies, be ready for him and watch him like an Hawk.

All the best.. and a big thank-you for all those responses in helping me with the PSTS, pupil problems, and help with the Part III

Much appreciated..
Steve
